Shared Event
Exclusive Event

As you approach Leicester’s iconic party venue your senses dance as intriguing sights and mysterious sounds grow stronger. An evening of astounding entertainment and great fun awaits – Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to Cirque De Lumiere!

Dazzling beams of light now dance around the room as you explore, collecting friends and colleagues along the way. The tempo of the evening momentarily changes pace as impromptu bursts of entertainment light up the podiums and the night begins to show its real character!

As you are guided in to take your seats for a superb three course feast, the vibrant stage comes to life and you are treated to an evening of exhilarating entertainment. World-class aerial entertainers fill the air above you, showcasing world-class routines while seamlessly choreographed dancers bring powerful energy to the floor below.

As dinner comes to a close, the dance floor instantly fills with a mixture of modern hits and party classics. A Chocolate fountain begins to flow, casino tables open and fairground stalls begin to ply their trade. While some take coffee and chocolates in a quieter area, the dance floor beckons for those disco bunnies with boundless energy and whose night is still young!

As well as offering mixed parties for groups of 8 and upwards, Athena is available for exclusive hire. During November & December the venue has a high specification of lighting, sound, staging and theming installed offering great cost savings.
